New critic on the way

Hi all,

I'm a little bit in hiding lately. Partly, of course, is that I'm a music teacher now and September is the time of year that generally kills me, but there's been something else that's...

Re: Why is Halo so critically acclaimed and popular?

That's fine, but again, the fact that the game doesn't really show its true colours unless you're willing to play at that higher level doesn't fly with me. If the AI is that interesting, and the...

Re: Why did you pick your avatar?

Bassist and keyboardist, through and through, but I'm actually primarily a composer. I've written for film and TV spots, as well as some large-scale orchestral works. It's really cool to hear someone...

Re: Your Top 5 Must-Play Downloadable Games?

What, no Shadow Complex love? Yeesh, tough crowd.

Anyway, I'd like to add both Bit.Trip games for WiiWare to this list. Great old-school aesthetics with addictive yet simple gameplay, with rhythm...

Re: Why did you pick your avatar?

Really? That's so cool! Are you with any particular opera company? As a musician, it's nice to know that there's someone else on these boards with the same passion that I have (outside of videogames,...

Re: Microsoft lowers xbox 360 price, Pro model to be cut.

I still can't believe the gall MS has in charging $160 CAD for a 120 gig HDD. I can buy a 1 TB external for $120, and I can use it anywhere. I am very resentful that I have a 20 gig hard drive, but I...

Re: I'm sick

It always happens this time of year. I've had a rotten feeling for a few weeks now. It escalated into a nasty summer cold a couple of weeks ago, now I just feel blech, and can't shake it.

Re: Why is Halo so critically acclaimed and popular?

I think it's that last phrase that is the most telling. I feel that way when I hear people praise FF7 as the best of the series, if not the greatest RPG ever. For many players, FF7 was their first...

Re: Unsung games you liked.

Cool thread!

For me, it was definitely Kabuki Quantum Fighters on the NES. A game so non-sensical, you had to use your HAIR as a weapon. Even though you're a middle-class American, somehow you get...

Nice to come home

Hey all,

It's almost 1 a.m., and I'm feeling somewhat incoherent (no alcohol, just general zaniness). But I just wanted to say how nice it was to see the forums getting a big burst of life and...

Re: Suggest a PC videogame.

Do it. I'm not a PC gamer outside of the Gamezebo stuff, and I was really digging it.

I'll tell you what: buy it, and if you really don't like it that much, I'll send you the cash as...

Re: Suggest a PC videogame.

Wait until you get to the later levels. Some of them are real head-scratchers. It's also not just accomplishing the goal, but doing it in creative ways. Did you get all the bonus stars?

THANK YOU!!!! It was tough when I went away for a day, and saw 53 posts, and only 3 were of discussions I wanted to read.

Re: Sony unveils slimmer PlayStation 3 for $299

Nope, none of the HD consoles actually come with HD cables, but I think I have a reasonable answer as to why.

The margins on new game hardware are slim-to-none. What's the markup on cables? A...

Re: Please rate this review: Madden NFL 10

Hi Coyls,

The ideas in the review are a lot more cogent this time around. I can better see where you're coming from, especially in response to Mike's criticisms.

I'd love to see some direct...

And Yet It Moves (http://www.andyetitmoves.net/) --> A wildly unknown game, but is a great combo of platformer/physics/WTF with a great art style and soundtrack.

Hey Coyls,

What Boy wrote is called a Second Opinion review. It's something that reflects on the initial review and either disagrees with or expands on the initial review. That's why he makes...
